Rλ Dependence of The Kolmogorov Constant and Scaling
We attempt to answer one of the outstanding issues in turbulence — does asymptotic inertial range scaling exist and if so, does it exist in a complete or incomplete similarity form? Although we cannot form a firm conclusion our results suggest we are tantalizingly close.
